Nnamdi Kanu’s trial continues today, Monday 26th July, at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Recall that he was arrested on June 25th in Kenya. Although the Kenyan government has denied that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was arrested in their country, sources are sure, and from Nnamdi Kanu’s statement with his lawyer that he was arrested in the country.
After the extradition to Nigeria without any court hearing in Kenya, the court hearing was initially slated for 26th June, with the prosecuting lawyer, Abubakar Salami, the Attorney-General of the federation, and the presiding judge, Dr Nyako. The trial was to today, 27th of July, a month after the former one.
The special counsel to the leader, Mr Aloy Ejimakor, advised security agents to avoid any sort of violence against the supporters of NNamdi Kanu who has stormed Abuja and the court premises to show solidarity for their leader.
Ejimakor stated in a press conference that Nnamdi Kanu’s trial was an open one and that the freedom fighter is still innocent until proven guilty. As such, anyone is free to support him and is free to show up for the trial.
This morning, major entrances to the court was blocked to prevent people, mostly supporters and IPOB members from trooping into the court.
